could you not just find a pair of these and use the pull adjustment feature?

I looked at it with m600 levers. Don't think so, as levers designed for v brakes so rock solid brake with canti / U and on the high setting (for experienced rides) makes worse, so I wouldn't do especially not for 12 year old.


The other thought if the V's mount ok on stays at right distance is to use separate cable guides and just bypass routing around seatpost and usual v and levers on front.

Re:

Thanks too many oranges - interestingly the pair you linked to work our more expensive than the brand new tiagras I’ve ordered, but good to know.

And in actual fact I think I may have some somewhere :facepalm:

I can let go of a pair of Tektro MT1.0 which do both Canti and V-brake. Postage from France, so may not be worth it.

There was an old thread about this a while ago.......rummages.......found:
